I choose these because my local Skechers didn't have the lace style. They are comfortable with the memory foam inside and fit my regular size for a tennis shoe. I have worn these to use on the treadmill at the gym as well as working long shifts at my retail job. I would definitely recommend these shoes.

Though I find these very comfortable, I've only been worn them for two weeks and the soles are already getting slick and worn. I would only recommend these if you are only going to wear them occasionally or only indoors. Does not appear to be durable enough for everyday walking on concrete.

        I bought these shoes because I needed a pair of lightweight attractive shoes to wear on long days of walking, like at the zoo or on vacation. After long days I don't want to feel like I've worn bricks all days. These are great shoes and the look great with a pair of shorts too!

                  A:

                  The Burst shoes are meant as a comfort sneaker that could also be used for some gym activities. They have a smooth outsole with soft traction nubs. I haven't heard from any customers specifically regarding tennis playing in these, but they should be comfortable and supportive for a casual game at least.

                  These should fit similar to the Shape-ups shoes, I would advise trying these in the 10 if you fit those in a 10.

                  The Burst - Divergent have an Air Cooled Memory Foam insole. The shoes have no leather in them, they are made from a flat knit mesh fabric. There are some leather versions coming soon though.

                I put in a promo code to receive $ 10 off. It did not register during checkout. How can I reapply it for credit towards this purchase? This promo was the reason why I am purchasing my second pair of Divergents.

                  If you have already placed your order, you may want to try to cancel it and redo it with the promo code entered before you complete checkout. SPRSAVE10 should work on this style.

                Q:

                I like the navy ones. I'm looking for very fresh shoes, but I'm wondering if the mesh is open or if it has another fabric covering the holes from inside? I'd like to get as many ventilation as posible, since I live in a very hot place.
                I'd also like to know if these ones are the same ones sold in Amazon by Scheckers, since the ones in there seem to have padded tongue and more pad from inside. Could you please clarify this too? Thanks.

                  A:

                  The mesh on the Divergent shoe is nice and breezy, it's stable and durable yet has very good air flow. These should be the same model as the ones that Amazon sells, especially if they are the same name. I'm not sure what their photos look like, but the Divergent shoes on skechers.com should be the correct look.
